IRCA: Starved Rock Lock Width Restrictions


I just received word that Starved Rock Lock has a 2’ ice shelf on the left descending wall and will now begin a 105’ width restriction.  Helper boats are required in both directions, as are ice couplings.


I’ll send more updates as I receive them.


Best regards,
